I learned most of what I know about Agile practices working for Pillar Technology for about a year and a half. For personal reasons I had to move back to Tulsa, so I worked for Garmin for a couple of years. Now I am starting a new position with more freedom to practice software development correctly, and to teach others to do so within the context of the work I do.
Test practice now:
I am just getting started at this company, but so far I am test-driving an implementation of telemetry encoding and decoding using Python, which I then intend to further test-drive in C and C++. I am looking for guidance on how to test-drive very low level code, such as direct hardware interface.
We work with PIC and Cortex-M series processors at the moment
Leaning toward using open source whenever possible, also ARM-MDK, MPLAB X
We do not yet have one established
Function too long:
When I can't understand it at a glance
Non-existent at this point
Favorite thing about dev:
I enjoy creating value and solving people's problems
Least favorite thing about dev:
It doesn't happen fast enough
I have practiced full time TDD in C++ for about a year and a half, ending about two years ago. In the interim, I have practiced TDD in Python when developing tools used in the software build process.
Why are you attending:
I want to improve my ability to test-drive code for embedded systems, and to encourage my colleagues to practice TDD in their projects.
